With the F15 X5 now launched, BMW turns to developing its SAC (Sports Activity Coupe) sibling - the F16 X6.
The new X6 shares styling cues from both the new X5 and the upcoming X4
. It shares the X5's new headlights-meet-grilles, enlarged kidney grilles and more forward leaning front fascia. Like the X5, the X6 also features air breather vents behind its front wheels.
With the X4 it shares the distinctive rear upsweeping character line which extends from the front of the rear fender upwards to meet the rear tail lights.
The F16 X6 should drop some weight as the F15 X5 has over the previous generation and generally retain a similar size and wheelbase as the current X6. It will share the F15 X5's engine/model lineup
. This particular prototype looks to be an xDrive50i with M Sport Package and wheels.
Expect the F16 X6 to debut in the second half of 2014 - early 2015.
